Hi,

I'm using outlook 2007 with Windows XP. This is a networked environment and some people can't open attachments. An error message comes up that says "can't open file, right click to save." This is happening with doc. ext files. We have also been unable to open some excel attachments.

How do I fix?

Thanks,

dconine

So its jut those two file types that are affected? Others open ok? If not all are affected, do some doc files open while others won't?

If the full text of the message is "Can't create file: Right-click the folder you want to create the file in, and

then click Properties on the shortcut menu to check your permissions for the folder". See Securetemp folder - your temp folder is "full".
